Many in the ROV industry are familiar with the “Phantom” ROV. Several hundred systems were produced over a period of about twenty years before the assets of the manufacturer were first sold and later liquidated. As a part of DOER’s commitment to supporting scientific institutions, government users and other small business owners, DOER has helped keep these older “Phantom” ROVs working by offering service, repair, maintenance, and a wide array replacement parts. Some parts and components are DOER produced while others are “commercial off the shelf” or “modified off the shelf” in origin. As these systems age, the low payload, monolithic pressure hulls sometimes begin to delaminate making them impractical to repair. The Spectre retrofit is DOER’s solution to breathe new life into these aging systems.
